Is it possible that 2017 now has a better feud than Nickelback vs. Stone Sour? Marilyn Manson has once again taken a jab at Justin Bieber, saying, “I don’t like to fight with girls, so I don’t want to fight with Justin Bieber.”

Marilyn Manson takes his role as an agent of chaos extremely seriously. The Antichrist Superstar threw some classic rock and roll chaos in his newest Top 10 album, Heaven Upside Down, along with plenty of Manson-esque philosophy and religious symbolism. But Justin Bieber… Manson knows where you f—king live, and instead of sending hate mail, the rock icon is sending messages straight through the press.

Manson was recently a guest on The Scully Show to give one of his first interviews since a falling stage prop broke the musician’s leg in two places. “He’s in some sort of sexual religious cult with an Asian version of Dave Navarro, apparently,” Manson said, mostly likely about “rock star pastor” Carl Lentz. “The guy doesn’t wear a shirt, I don’t know exactly. But no, I don’t like to fight with girls, so I don’t want to fight with Justin Bieber.”

As for Bieber using Manson’s image for a shirt that wasn’t okayed by the rocker, Marilyn still doesn’t understand why Bieber tried to get away with it. “I don’t know how to use the mind of a squirrel. So I don’t know what he’s thinking,” Manson says.

He continued, “It is representing rock and roll though, I appreciate the fact that you identify with the integrity that I try to represent with rock music. Because if I don’t do it, who else is going to? If you want to f—k with that, if you tap the cobra, you’re going to get the fangs. If you kiss the cobra, you get the venom. I’m not really sure what that metaphor means, but you can just absorb that and put it into your own brain.”
